Apple iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C to go on sale September 20th
The date September 10th should already be marked on your calendars - it is the day when Apple will finally unveil its new iPhone, and if we are to believe all we are hearing, this time there will be a pair of iPhones rather than a single one. The Apple iPhone 5S will be the seventh-generation iPhone (here's all we know about the iPhone 5S), the traditional yearly iPhone upgrade, but in addition Cupertino will also unveil a new plastic iPhone 5C that will be more affordable.

Now, launch dates for the two devices have also leaked. Expectations are the new iPhones will launch on September 20th.

If you know a bit about Apple you could have guessed the new iPhone release date yourselves, of course. For six years Apple has rolled out the new iPhone more than a week and less than two weeks after the official announcement. Moreover, Apple has the tradition to launch the device on Friday, giving users a full weekend to check out the device in store and purchase it if they want. The only Friday fitting those requirements is September 20th.

The interesting part in this latest rumor however is the fact that the new iPhone 5C is expected to launch at the same time as the iPhone 5S. We’ve been hearing rumors that the iPhone 5C will actually replace the iPhone 5. Thus, Apple might simply discontinue the iPhone 5 and offer the 5C instead for the reduced price of $99 on contract.

iOS 7, the new versions of Apple’s mobile operating system with completely redesigned looks, will allegedly launch a few days earlier on September 16th.

The Apple iPad fifth generation and the iPad mini 2 are expected to launch later on, likely in the of October, around October 25th.

All in all, here are all key dates to know:

  • Sept 10: Apple announces iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C
  • Sept 16: Apple rolls out iOS 7
  • Sept 20: Apple iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C go on sale
  • Oct 25: Apple iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 go on sale

Keep in mind that all this - as true as it sounds - is just rumors at the time being.

hopefully I never will. They're awful to hold, and the cheap one looks like something from Toys 'r' Us. Granted all iphones have looked like toys, but the colorful ones look like something from the LeapFrog or Fisher-Price collection.

So where's that premium feel those Apple fans are always boasting about with the 5c? It looks like something a kid wins in a claw machine at Chuck E. Cheese.

Gawwdd! Apple fans never boasted about the premium feel of 5C!
If you want the premium feel, you've to pay a premium and get the 5S.

That's strange I've never held anything that apple sells and felt as though it was premium...

Be glad you are missing out on bugs that were not caught in the beta testing process. Maybe wait until early October to get an iOS update that fixes (attempts to fix) the early bugs.

I am sick of the iPhone Rumors. Every time one of these articles comes out with a "release date", my customers call and say "I want to order the new iPhone". I say "We can't order it yet. There's been no announcement, so we don't really know when or if a new one is being released." Then they say, "Well, my son said they're coming out on September 20th, and he really knows his stuff, so I think he's right." FML.

Thank god I only owned the iphone 4 when it came out, but never again. Apple can keep they're over priced, exaggerated hipster products. Google all the way.

Like it or not this will be a hit for Apple.

1. The 5s will attract all the 4, and 4s Apple loyal fans who are now looking to upgrade. No more 5 as Apple will discontinue it and replace it with the 5c

2. People looking to get their first iPhone will look at the 5c and see it is only a little less then the 5s and will opt for the 5s. (brilliant marketing move by Apple, People will want siri, the finger print scanner etc.. )

3. The losing side 5c will ( in my opinion) will not sell much.

4. Many will look at their iPhone 4s & 5 and decide its not worth upgrading because the changes are so minor and they still get the features of iOS 7. in which case Apple still does well but the numbers remain flat.

Apple is not about tech, it is about being cool, popular, posh...which is why many Americans will gladly buy it, like they buy what our gov't and mainstream media tells them.....gullible and ignorant.

you android fanboys sound so jealous and desperate for attention. Some people like iphones, no reason to spend all day and night trying to prove android is better. Save your time and energy, get over it.

A retarded monkey could see that Android offers actual innovation and more features than the apple and their iPhone.

I just watched a video also on the scratch testing of the iPhone 5C, and it holds up really good! I remember the plastic back iPhone 3GS was not very bad compared to how scratched the iPhone 5 looks like after a few months of pocket wear. I actually think that the plastic might look better after extended use. Im not sure. The video was here not bad, but I just wish the aluminum held up better because I like the look, but after awhile it doesn't look as good anymore... plastic might look better for longer.
